Minister labels public servants 'fat and happy'

DEFENCE MINISTER

I SAY, I SAY, I'M FAT AND HAPPY BECAUSE YOU LOT HAVE TO GO.

Minister labels public servants 'fat and happy'

Defence Minister David Johnston is still saying 1200 public servants will be made redundant from the Defence Department even though his government's own portfolio budget statements say it will be almost double this number. 

Then he labelled them "fat and happy" apparently he doesn't like fat and happy people.

This is while Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Treasurer Joe Hockey try with great difficulty to sell the brutal financial plan to the nation.
  
The budget will reduce defence staff numbers by almost 2300 over five years, according to the portfolio budget statements.

This is much higher than the "1200" by 2017-18 described in the budget.

The non-partisan Australian Strategic Policy Institute and the opposition agree almost 2300 bureaucrats will leave Defence in coming years.

It seems as though no one in the government really know what's written in the budget or the are deliberately not telling us.
